Session Type: ARHP Concurrent Sessions
Tuesday, November 8, 2011: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
W195 (McCormick Place West)
Clinical  SessionSelect

Session Overview:
Nearly one third of working-age individuals work with arthritis limitations. Research suggests that the health professionals may be inadequately prepared to help implement solutions. Case based scenarios and solutions will be discussed in small groups and then the panel will review optimal strategies for positive work outcomes. Resources to support clinicians in helping patients avoid work disability will also be discussed.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • identify solutions that could help work related challenges
  • discuss solutions for arthritis work related challenges
  • review a range of issues that patients may encounter, including: ergonomic changes, physical job accommodations, energy balance and advocacy
